Canadian Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Thinking of hosting Thanksgiving in your RV this year? We've put together some tips to help you prepare for the day!

Cook In Advance

Look at what you plan to make and prepare as much as you can the day before. The turkey and some other side dishes can be cooked beforehand and can be stored in the fridge. This will help save room when cooking.

Keep It Small

If space is tight in your RV, keep your guest list to a minimum and only cooked for that many people. For example, prepare a few staple items for dinner and go out for dessert later on.

Use A Slow-Cooker

Slow-cookers can come in handy when it comes to preparing larger dishes. Consider using a slow-cooker to prepare some of your sides. It's as easy as plugging it in at the start of the day and letting it cook until dinner time. 

Cook Outdoors

If you're cooking for a larger group of people, consider utilizing your campfire or your grill (most campsites feature park-style grills). All you need is some firewood or charcoal and you've just saved a ton of space inside your RV. 

Organize Yourself

Prepare all of your ingredients a day or two in advance. Assemble everything you need for cooking, like spices, sauces and veggies. Arrange the items away from your main cooking area so they're easily accessible.

Use Disposable Cookware

Space is limited, so storing away full-size baking pans and other utensils can be tough. Try using foil roasting pans, paper plates and plastic utensils that can be easily stored and thrown away after to help save space.

Cleaning Up

Avoid headaches by cleaning your cookware and utensils as you go. It will save on room and make clean up easier for when you're finished that big meal!
